How to Avoid Getting Sick

The season of colds and coughs is upon us once again. I don't know about you, but there is nothing that I hate more than getting sick, especially when I have important things to do! So today I'm sharing my tips on how to avoid getting sick.


one: wash your hands
Washing your hands more than normal will help to combat the germs that could get on them. If you are not able to wash your hands a lot, try carrying around a hand sanitizer and using it whenever you feel like it! Try to avoid touching your mouth, especially when you've been around someone who is sick. 

two: eat your fruits and veggies
Eating healthy benefits your body in so many ways! If you fuel your body well, your body will be able to fight those germs better! Fruits and vegetables that are high in Vitamin C are especially great. 

three: take vitamins
There are many vitamins out there that don't taste disgusting, so if that's your excuse, try finding some that you do like. Sometimes your body just needs something a little extra to help it stay healthy!

four: drink water
What is water not a cure for? It seems to be the cure for almost everything. Make sure that you are staying hydrated and your body will reward you.

five: get sleep
Your body needs sleep, and how can you expect it to fight off sicknesses if it's not well-rested? So make sure to catch some zzz's, at least 6 hours. 

six: workout
See a pattern here? Everything involves staying healthy and fueling your body. Basically, treat your body right, and it will do it's job! Go for a run or do a workout video- whatever you want!

Stay healthy,
